In the second year of the pandemic, this technology allowed the society to resume its annual meeting, successfully holding a fully virtual meeting in 2021. However, nothing can replace physical, faceto-face interactions; it is therefore with great enthusiasm that the society welcomes its delegate back for an in-person meeting this year in South Korea. The society evolved from the Asia-Pacific Intraocular Implant Association (APIIA) founded by Prof. Arthur Lim to reflect the dynamic developments in cataract and refractive surgery at the turn of the millennium. In 1987, Prof. Lim foresaw the importance of these developments in Asia, and the society has since witnessed rapid growth under the leadership of Past Presidents Professor Graham Barrett, Clinical Associate Professor Ronald Yeoh, Professor Hiroko Bissen-Miyajima and current leadership under Abhay Vasavada. While the Asia-Pacific geographically represents about a quarter of the world, Asia is home to over half the world’s population. The society aims to address the continent’s cataract and refractive surgery needs, accepting the further challenge of the region’s social, economic, and cultural diversity. Meeting this challenge head on, the APACRS has developed various means to fulfill its function and guide its members along the path to enlightenment. Print Publications Among the tools the society has developed to achieve its goals is EyeWorld AsiaPacific, an international anterior segment ophthalmology news magazine. The magazine keeps readers abreast of the latest developments in ophthalmology while hewing to a perspective that is always relevant to the particular needs, cognizant to the nuances of the Asia-Pacific region. Now in its 16th year, the magazine is read by over 50,000 ophthalmologists in 22 countries in the region, over 60 around the world. Published quarterly, the EyeWorld Asia-Pacific comes in 4 editions - Asia-Pacific, China,
